California Academy of Sciences


The California Academy of Sciences is a world-class scientific and cultural institution based in San Francisco. The Academy recently opened a new facility in Golden Gate Park, a 400,000 square foot structure that houses an aquarium, a planetarium a natural history museum and a 4-story rainforest all under one roof. The new facility is also home to the Academy’s staff of world-class scientists, an education department that provides a wide range of student and teacher services, and an extensive science library with nearly 46 million specimens and artifacts.

The Academy Library serves the research and educational needs of all Academy staff, docents, volunteers, members, educators and students, and the community at large. Our mission is to facilitate access to scientific information and Academy history.

The Academy Archives collects, preserves, and interprets records of the work done by the California Academy of Sciences, the history of science in the American West, and the research of scientists throughout the Pacific Rim.  Our collections include over 70,000 digital images, 100,000 prints and negatives, 3,000 reels of film, significant natural history illustrations and paintings, manuscripts and assorted text, and a small (but growing) collection of software and other digital records.  From the handwritten minutes of the first meeting of the Academy in April 1853 to backups of the Academy’s Twitter feed, the Academy Archives is the institutional memory of the California Academy of Sciences. 

The Academy Archives is open to Academy staff and outside researchers Monday through Friday, 10am to 5pm, by advance appointment only. Some digital collections are also available through the Academy website. To arrange an on-site appointment or request permission to use digital collections, please contact archives@calacademy.org.
